This seems to give me near enough full screen width in 132 column mode, but 
at least it fits on the screen completely. It would be nice to have the 
screen switch between fonts when switching modes, so the 24x80 screen is a 
similar size, though with a larger font. I have no idea how much work would 
be involved in this, and as I can only program in CL & RPG, I don't suppose 
I'd be up to the task :-(
     Since the font is determined by the terminal window, and not by 
     tn5250, I don't suppose it's possible.
On an unrelated subject, how is coulour handled by the emulator? I get both 
blue and turquiose as the same colour, but blue is in a bolder font (both 
look like the turquiose as seen on a colour dumb terminal or CA emulation 
session). Is this a tn5250 thing, or something to do with my colour mapping 
     I fixed this by hacking the colour mapping in the source.  I haven't 
     tried it yet in 0.14, but it looks like the mapping is in cursesterm.c 
     - it has occurred to me that it would be a nice enhancement to allow 
     the colour mapping to be read from a file as a command-line option 
     (Jay?).  I find this useful to readily distinguish which of our three 
     AS/400s I am working on.
